Ya the freezer is running but its going through the controller. So the temperature should reach 62 inside the freezer and cut off. However it just keeps running. Correct, if the freezer was plugged straight into the wall, bypassing my controller, everything should be frozen, but thats not what Im doing. Sorry, im not too sure how i explained this so funky. Im sure i used inappropriate terminology.
Alestateyall is correct. I didn't even think about that. Plug the freezer into the wall and see if the walls get cold. By cold I mean very cold, not slightly cold.
Very possible it's just the compressor frozen up. If that's not it, though, replacing a used chest freezer with a used chest freezer is generally the same price as replacing a compressor in a used chest freezer.
